Re: Fanspeak 2017 NFL Draft Simulator

Okay, I'm really warming to the idea that McCaffrey could be our Shady (Lesean McCoy), so I ran with it...

Pick No. 011 (R1, P11) RB Christian McCaffrey, Stanford

Pick No. 032 (R1, P32) DL Malik McDowell, Michigan

Pick No. 042 (R2, P10) LB T.J. Watt, Wisconsin

Pick No. 076 (R3, P12) CB Ahkello Witherspoon, Colorado

Pick No. 103 (R3, P39) WR Chad Hansen, California

Pick No. 196 (R6, P12) LB Jordan Evans, Oklahoma

Pick No. 229 (R7, P11) QB Chad Kelly, Ole Miss

I'd be very, very happy with this haul; but it was a fluke McDowell fell all the way to 32...

I'm starting to believe Allen could fall like Bama's D-linemen fell last year; great player, but the arthritis thing is a bit worrisome...

Players have got to be available as Payton says...

Really like Watt, but I'm starting to see how he could be a reach for some teams in the first round...

He's projected for right where we'll be in the second round, and I'd love him as a linebacker to compete with Ellerbe...

Watt, Moreau and Evans are among my favorites for this draft...

See Kittle as a fourth, fifth round pick, but you're right that teams may reach late in the third as they're not alot of good TEs in the league right now...

Obi-wan may go in the first round...

Jones is no higher than a third round pick with a busted achilles...

Moreau is hard to gauge right now; but I still see him the first 50 picks...

Really hope we don't take Mixon; girl he punched may be questionable, but he still suckerpunched a girl...

Kupp is gonna be a good one, but I like Chad Hansen of Cal better...

I'd be shocked if Davis Webb is still on the board when Round 3 starts...

Re: Fanspeak 2017 NFL Draft Simulator

That was purely what was there and for fun. Some of the players rounds are way off.

Trubisky went in the second.

Yeah, it's not a fool proof simulator, but you get an idea that as certain players come off the board, what could transpire...

Re: Fanspeak 2017 NFL Draft Simulator

Just ran a new mock...

Round 1, Pick 11: Derek Barnett - DE
- With his production in college, and readiness for the NFL, should give us a solid, young DL able to put pressure ad get sacks for many seasons

R1, P32: Tre'Davious White - CB
- Overall top ranked CB in 2016 by PFF. Can play inside or outside, and can also return kicks. Good production

R2, P10: Joe Mixon - RB
- Controversial pick with his history, but the fact he came in for a private visit, when we have a history of avoiding such players, indicates he's a prospect that we may not want to overlook. Productive as a runner and receiver, and arguably to three in the nation

R 3, P12: Cooper Kupp - WR
- Some more young blood for our young WR corps. May be the best route runner in the country, but from a smaller school. Shined at the Senior Bowl. Rarely drops a pass, with good height at 6'2.

R3, P39: Teez Tabor - CB
- PFF has him ranked as the 3rd best CB, and has allowed a passer rating of 41.2 over the last three seasons. For reference, the passer rating for throwing the ball into the dirt every play is 39.6... again, that rating for the last three seasons. #TaborIsland
https://www.profootballfocus.com/dra...or-cb-florida/

R6, P12: Lorenzo Jerome - S
- small school safety with ballhawking skills. Put this on display at the Senior Bowl where he had two interceptions and a forced fumble in the game

R7, P11:Eric Saubert - TE
- discussed Saubert before. Had a great East-West Shrine week. Had some drops in his career but also made great plays. High reward TE for the 7th round
